Significance and Use
The asphalt should be extracted from the aggregate-asphalt mixture in accordance with Method A of Test Methods D 2172 (centrifuge method) as there is some experimental evidence that the recovered asphalt may have slightly lower penetration values when recovered from solutions obtained from hot extraction methods.
1.1 This test method covers the recovery by the Abson method of asphalt from a solution from a previously conducted extraction. The asphalt is recovered with properties substantially the same as those it possessed in the bituminous mixture and in quantities sufficient for further testing.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
